Barclays has suspended six traders while it investigates the possible manipulation of foreign exchange markets, a source said on Friday.
The state-rescued Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) also suspended two of its traders on Thursday as part of the international probe, another source said.
Barclays declined to comment, but a source close to the matter confirmed that six employees had been suspended.
Some of the six were reportedly based outside Britain.
Deutsche Bank, Swiss bank UBS and US banks Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase are also caught up in the forex probe.
